Nothing puts a smile on your child’s face (and let’s be honest, yours) when the first snowfall happens to initiate the start of the magical winter season or even when surprise snow makes a guest appearance when you least expect it. Regardless of when it happens, it’s a good excuse to head outside to your lawn and make some good old snow angels to spend some quality time with family and make memories to last a lifetime. Aside from snow angels, there are so many fun ways to have fun in the snow (or even use them in the sand at the beach) with the help of some genius snow toys for kids.
When deciding on which snow toys for kids to add to your winter wonderland rotation, there are a few no-brainers to have on hand.
